problems that get thrust upon them as a consequence of diminished tax bases and the consequence of housing, the significant portion of the public and their states that are in most need. we're committed to having a third phase of the so-called big deal on the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop to get our economy in great shape and move toward a balanced bump started off with three phases. started with president bush's actions, the first president bush, in terms of taxation, before president clinton took office. then the actions the president took in '94 and then in '97. well, we think there's a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt, the gdp, our deficit to gdp, down around 3%, which is the basis of which all economists left, right, center, agree, are the areas which we really can begin to grow as a country. and also my grandfather used to say, with the grace of god and good will of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail between now and the time we deal with th
is it will increase -- by not raising the debt ceiling, you should be able to raise taxes on the wealthy, making $200,000 a year or more. host: ok. anthony in greensboro, north carolina, independent. caller: good morning. i have done quite a bit of research on the debt. what i don't hear from anybody, whether from the politicians or people asking questions, is the fact that the united states over the last 10 or 15 years has overwhelmingly started bases all over the world. over 1200 bases. and i cannot get a direct answer to actually how many. each would bring in the amount of money well over $1 trillion in just the maintenance. along with that, on the far side, after deep search, i discovered that the united states in the last eight years, since 1998, i believe, through nasa, they have come to believe in some kind of solar scenario along with an economic scenario and have been spending a lot of money in creating bases or underground cities in preparation, which is understandable, as any other nation, including japan and china have been doing themselves. host: next we will hear from a democratic calle
. >> not the last question. >> i'm sorry, francine. [inaudible] >> everything you run out of tax reform process has been out with a has to measure to make them maybe not impossible, but much less likely to tax reform goes forward this year. is that basically what you believe? if you could say a word about why tax reform should go forward. what do you see as the upside of that? >> i'm not saying that. what i'm saying is they think we took seems that do not package they have some ramifications tax reform. but i am not saying that we shouldn't sit down and talk about how we look at our tax structure and how we reform it. it's a fact that by what we thought it, but it isn't anything close to the whole package. i think what it does is to force people to be more concrete about what they mean when they took about tax reform. let me just give you an example. some of the provisions that we have been training and retraining, some of them are in appropriation and some of them are in the tax structure. i think we can take a hard look at all of our training programs. some of them aren't about to taxation. i thi
and said it much better than i will, in fact, maybe if you had it on tape, we'd show it. but tax policy and trade policy. obviously, as the recession hits the world, why, trade policy gets more difficult. and we have troubles getting products into two of our most fast-growing markets, in argentina and brazil, which we could use some government help on keeping those markets open. and, of course, the big one is tax policy. we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. so that mark barker who is now the ceo of the company and for a young whippersnapper of 55, he's doing a great job, but that he sits every year when he sets the budget, and he has to decide where the last dollar of investment goes. and where it generates the last dollar of profit. so he could get a dollar of profit in the united states for which 60 cents goes out to the shareholder, to the ultimate shareholder. or he can get another dollar, he can get that dollar profit in timbuktu of which 75 cents comes to the average shareholder. so any global company can maneuver around it, procter & gamble does that, i'm sure, be
their fair share of taxes. he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their children and gun-free zones for our kids. host: that the latest ad by the nra, put out yesterday, getting a lot of feedback about the ad invoking the president's children. the "washington times" has this headline this morning about president obama's event this morning. that is our question for all of you. if president obama acts on his own with executive action, do you support that idea? we're getting your take on that this morning. we will go to sandra in sulphur springs, texas, a republican. caller: how are you? i just have a question to ask the rest of the people listening. what about the fort hood shootings? has anybody thought about how many guns were there? the man walked in, he was a psychologist, he walked in and killed our soldiers at fort hood. . what is the gun ban going to do on that? what does obama think about that? host: what do you think about the president taking some actions on his own? caller: i don't think anybody ought to take our guns away.
to be uninsured. you're not going to have that option because when you file your taxes, you'll have to attach proof that you are in a government-mandated plan. >> gretchen: wow. >> so if you earn too much to be eligible for medicaid, you will have to go shop on the state health insurance exchanges. >> gretchen: so these health insurance exchanges, a lot of this is rolling out now. >> they'll be open in october. and most people have never heard of these. but they're like an 800 number, a web site, and a dmv type office. and they only sell the government man-dated plan. it's like going to a dealership that sells four door sedans. >> gretchen: they dictate what you're going to get. i thought obamacare was supposed to give you a choice? >> no, there really will be no choice. there will be bronze, silver, gold and platinum. but they all have the same coverage. only the co-pays differ. section 1311 puts the federal government in charge of your health care fort first time, even if you have a private plan you paid for yourself. the secretary of health and human services can still dictate what doctors
, such as taxes and insurance, generally cannot add up to more than 43% of their monthly gross income. no standard is perfect, but the standard here provides a clear line with a measure of protection to borrowers that have increased certainty in the mortgage market. host: i want to bring in a few callers on this subject for you. oklahoma city, oklahoma, democratic line. good morning, vernon. caller: i am tickled to death that the government is setting the rules for the financial industry when it comes to the home market. people worked all their lives to provide a home and held for ways to get it paid off before they retire. this is the one area that the government needs to regulate and regulate closely and i am glad we're finally doing that. now, of course, we have drawn a line in the sand that we can hopefully reclaim. can we hope that it will ever change back to what we thought we had been through? guest: an excellent question. another one to add to that is -- will the regulators have the appetite to regulate this closely? making sure that banks are abiding by these rules? we had a system going
about now closing more loopholes and that means higher taxes. we don't know on who, but he would not specify any specific spending reductions and refusing to negotiate with the house republicans on the issue of the debt ceiling. lou, an interesting couple of months. looking forward to it. >> megyn: all right. thank you, sir. >> thanks, megyn. >> megyn: with the president refuse to go negotiate on that debt ceiling, it's coming and we're going to hit it and there's going to be a real question what we will do. he negotiated the last time and suddenly says he doesn't want to negotiate anymore and the republicans have drawn a line in the sand when it comes to these spending cuts, saying, if we don't see a dollar for dollar spending cut in the amount you want to raise the debt ceiling, there's no deal. what kind of progress can we hope for here? our political panel debates that coming up in our next hour. now to another big debate playing out in washington over the obama administration's efforts to overhaul the nation's gun laws. we heard some of that this morning. here is the preside
stating very clearly today that he will not negotiate deficit reduction, tax increases and spending cuts attached to the debt ceiling. this of course does follow that bruising battle the year before last, where he did negotiate on the issue, and the u.s. nearly went to the brink of default. he said that congress has to pay the bills that it's already racked up. >> you don't go out to dinner and then, you know, eat all you want and then leave without paying the check. and if you do, you're breaking the law. and congress should think about it the same way that the american people do. you don't -- now, if congress want, to have a debate about maybe we shouldn't go out to dinner next time, maybe we should go to a more modest restaurant, that's fine. that's the debate that we should have. >> reporter: in this press conference that was called last minute in the east room, president obama said he will negotiate a deal on deficit reduction but not, as he put it, quote, with a gun to the head of the american people. as you know, joe, republicans are saying they're not going to increase the debt c
are paycheck tax hike. lauren simonetti joins us with more on this. most americans buy tomorrow will have experienced this hit in their paycheck. >> already 134 million americans are feeling the 2 percentage point increase in the social security tax. that's expect to do drum up 125 billion in revenue for the government this year. but it's likely already eating away at your disposable income trips to the movies and restaurants brands you are buying at the food store. the increase means american families have this much less to spend this year $354 for those living at the level. the average income being 64,000. 2400 for those making $1,134,000. >> we were not aware that was going to happen. >> something people can't avoid buying gas. gas prices have increased. >> backup. on october 5th gasoline average 3.46. it fell $0.58 that stopped the average price $3.32. that's an crease of $0.07 in two weeks. they are starting to pass on the higher cost of crude oil. prices will go up until the next few weeks until they possibly go back down. the weather gets nicer people start driving more. >> then th
revenue through tax reform by closing loopholes in our tax code for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it's fair, for example, to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care, or a scientist to shut down lifesaving research so that a multimillionaire investor can pay less in tax rates than a secretary. they don't think it's smart to protect endless corporate loopholes and tax breaks for the wealthiest americans rather than rebuild our roads and our schools, invest in our workers' skills, or help manufacturers bring jobs back to america. so they want us to get our books in order in a balanced way, where everybody pulls their weight, everyone does their part. that's what i w
and it calls him this. >> mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> president obama has secret service protection for his daughters, sasha and malia. asking if the president's kids are more important than yours. oh, my goodness, secret service protection, pretty customary for the president and his family. more bill next. these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. before the sneeze, help protect with a spray. before the tissue, help defend with a wipe. before the cold & flu season help prevent with lysol. because when you have 10 t
the city counsel stopped the increase of taxes. >> today, mavericks will begin get southing -- setting up the festival which is expected to be packed with visitors. >> way too many customers and probably not enough food. >> a high surf advisory has beenish issued. authorities are morning to be careful with the waves like this one. stay tuned coverage on the mavericks surfing competition. you can watch online at ktvu.com or use our mobile ap. >>> if you are heading out to the beach today, you want to avoid the water because the waves are coming in. >>> sure, the sneaker waves are exactly what they are called. they can wash you out, especially the little ones oen the beaches. be prepared if you are going out there. it's going to be a nice beach day, just be prepared. look at the golden sun, plenty in store. we will continue with the cool conditions at least in the next hour or so. a rapid warm up. here's a look at what we are expecting, anywhere from 8 to 10 feet today. out at mavericks for the afternoon tomorrow, the waves hitting 30 feet and above. it's going to be a great day to observe
many workers were surprised to see higher payroll taxes in the first paycheck of the year. it shrank take home earnings bys by 2% or more. a temporary cut in social security and medicare taxes expired as part of the fiscal cliff compromise. >>> and sunny california has turned into shivering california. frost and freezing temperatures are blanketing the state for the fourth night in a row. so far, citrus growers say they protected their crops using water and heaters. no significant crop damage is reported. overnight temperatures in los angeles over the weekend were in the 30s and in the 20s near san francisco. that's why everybody was cold. >> and we were >>> that's why i love the weather. it's always strange. and it is very cold out there right now. in fact, chilly temperatures in the bay area in the 20s and the 30s. we're currently under a freeze warning at this time. nice and clear. that cold air setting overhead freeze warnings up in many of the valleys. temperatures these numbers in the 20s and 30s. by the afternoon, highs only expected to be in the 40
, and raised taxes more than once. and reagan was in favor of a ban on assault weapons just like president obama. >> right, and that comment was a way of saying that these are very centrist reforms, really common sense things that most americans agree with. he emphasized that in a few ways and a few times during that time. and i think the framing you're talking about, too, is really important. it is not just guns they're looking at. they're looking at mental health and research, links between violent media. you know, they are looking at more armed school resource officers at schools and providing funding for that. but i think constantly framing it, these are things that just make sense that the majority of americans support. and how can the republicans be so intransigent, not be even willing to discuss or consider any of these measures. >> richard, a month ago we heard the pundits say hand it off to joe biden and you will be involved in a senate committee process and lose all the momentum. well, this president/joe biden team, in the meantime, solved the fiscal cliff situation. joe biden re

different visions. a republican said, you know what, we didn't win that fiscal cliff battle, we raised taxes, we didn't want to do it, now this has got to be all about spending cuts and you have the president saying, no, it is going to be about raising the debt ceiling, then we can talk about some kind of grand bargain. but you have to get over the speed bump, brooke. and i just -- >> hang on a second. you used two words -- gloria borger, you're saying grand bargain? is that -- ali velshi, let me ask you that, grand bargain, is that in our lexicon anymore? >> yeah, i don't even know if bargain is a possibility. gloria knows the politics of this better than i do. the -- somebody asked the question at the press conference, the president said he's not negotiating on this, but you said that about increasing taxes, the last debt limit. i don't know where you go from here politically. i only know economically the market will act as an enforcer and interest rates will act as an enforcer if you don't get it right. how you get a deal, that's above my pay grade. >> and, brooke, the real problem here,
their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for ours. >> that's a real ad. that, my friends, is political pornography. >> that's one of the grossest things i've ever seen in my life. >> i don't know what to say. joe? >> what's wrong with these people, mika? what's wrong with these people? you have children that had no say in the decision on whether their father was going to step forward to be president of the united states, to run for president, one of the most bone-crushing sacrificing things any husband or wife can do to their family. and the second they make that decision, their children and their entire family have targets on their backs. and the nra is putting something out like -- what's wrong with these people, putting out apps that 4-year-olds can play on the anniversary of the newtown murders, and now putting out an ad talking about the president's daughters? >> they are out of step, out of the mainstream, totally out of sync with what's going on in our society. and quite f

the program happens to be. a new war. a new tax cut for the rich. they demand the spending. and then they have to -- it comes time to pay the bills. raising the debt ceiling means we agree we're going to pay the bills that congress has already spent. right? we're going to pay for the stuff that congress has already bought. as a president i thought it was an excellent analogy yesterday. you don't go to a restaurant and order a fine meal and then say i'm going to start cutting back right now. i'm not going to pay for that meal. you already ate it, babe! right? >> that's right. how fiscally conservative for them to say we're not going to pay that. let's just clear up this false equivalency that i think it was the first or second question who made the point at the press conference yesterday well, you voted against the debt ceiling in 2006 so what's the deal? look this is -- 2010 -- 2011, after the 2010 election, the whole tea party wave was the first time that you saw republicans hold it hostage. and say unless you do what we want we're not raising the debt ceiling. democrats have never done that.
're going to sell it to me. you have to go through all kinds of registration and pay taxes and other things. transfer one of our cars to one of our sons recently, we had to go to the vehicle the coming transfer and whatever the costs. why somebody should be able to go into a gun show and by any kind of a thing without any kind of a background check that you have otherwise, at least not unenforceable one, i cannot understand that. i really can't. i think we should have stricter background checks and they should be real ones. you have restraining orders on you, you should not be able to do that. i am understand every state is different. in vermont, you can carry a loaded and concealed weapon this afternoon. we have one of the lowest crime rates in the country. but not because of that. we are, as a society, we are very law-abiding. but with that stop somebody -- but would that stop somebody who is mentally unhinged from going out and using a gun or a knife and killing people? no. i am interested in the meeting this morning to hear the proposals and they will be considered in the judiciary comm
